At Ruspini House we provide a safe, secure environment that is rich and stimulating where all children can develop to become curious, independent learners.  We strive to be a beacon of excellence in early year’s provision, prioritising three key ingredients, highly trained staff, an enabling well-resourced environment, and a balance between child and teacher-led learning. Our highly qualified team offers each child exemplary care and exciting learning opportunities.
